FYI, I tested it, with a vanilla config, i.e. nothing but the stock
scripts, and was getting the 101 Poll message.   I just migrated my
cluster from FreeBSD to Linux, and the error seems to be happening
slightly more often on Linux.

I just tried Seth's suggestions about filtering ContentGap and
AckAboveHole, and it has been quiet for the last couple hours.  I had
been noticing the error more often during our peak times, so I should
see crashes right now.  My second proxy seems to be crashing a bit more
often after implementing the filter, but it is on a machine with only 4
GB of RAM, so it is using up all of the physical memory.
